We applied in April 2019 front loaded with an RFI in August, nothing new since then, still in ‘submitted’ state. Guessing it won’t be until April 2020 that we hear anything.

We didn't front load but applied in May 2019, RFI in August, now just sweating it out here as well. I'm looking forward to April! Either way I have to go to Aus in August for a wedding~

Not here. We submitted in August and went to RFI in October, but no word since.

We'd actually initially planned to have submitted it way earlier than August, so we did my partner's FBI clearance back in February 2019 (but the submission was delayed due to an unexpected lack of funds), meaning it actually expires tomorrow (one year), so we'll have to do a new clearance.

Having submitted in late August 2019 and having received the RFI for background checks and medical examination in September of 2019, my wife and I haven't heard anything in the time since. We are hoping to hear something around the 12 month mark (July or August of this year), but have started to prepare slightly for the big move.

We just finalized a contract with a Pet Transportation agency, and will soon schedule to have our dog take the rabies titer test (which will begin a minimum 6 month countdown before he can be sent over) - we expected this to be a big chunk of money, but it still hurt making the payment!

We are also working with real estate agents in anticipation of selling our home, but not wanting to sell just yet as, again, we don't know when we will be moving...it's also difficult to know whether the home will have offers within weeks, or if it will take months to move (our neighborhood seems to vary significantly).

Finally, we are updating our resumes and doing some preliminary job searches over in Perth, as we will both be moving without a job lined up.

Is anyone else experiencing stressors like these, which are compounded by the 'unknown' time period for the visa to process? If I knew we would be approved by October, for example, then we could plan a bit more, but everything has to have this weird window of unpredictability around it.

The biggest concern for me is not knowing when to put the house on the market (don't really want to be paying a mortgage while living in Australia if it doesn't sell, but also don't want to find 3-6 months of accommodation with a dog here if the visa takes too long). Open to any tips or advice from others who have experienced, or are currently experiencing problems like this!

Its been pretty stressful!! We submitted ours in April of 2019,received RFI in August.Submitted everything in 2 weeks, havent heard back anything since then.We are also wondering what to do, especially daughter's school. For myself too, I could start applying for interviews, but since I have no idea when the visa would get approved,the employers wont even consider the application. So we are pretty much undecided as to what to do!!!

We are in the same boat. We have to go to Australia for a wedding in late August this year and I got my RFI in August of last year so just wringing my hands and planning. If I have to, I'll head over on a tourist visa and just leave when I need the grant but there are so many moving pieces involved in moving and I'm so stressed!

Talking New Friend

Hi Everyone!

I was directed to this thread as the waiting room for people from the US waiting. My name is Jessica and I am patiently waiting for that golden email like each of you.

My fiancé and I filed for our PMV on Nov. 11, 2019. Today marks 4 months! We worked with an agent in Sydney and front loaded everything including medicals and police checks.

On Feb. 14, 2020 we received an email that they needed my state police check which I thought we had already submitted. They asked for it by tomorrow. We re-submitted it asap. So, I am hoping that tomorrow is the day our application comes back to the top of the pile for consideration.

I am heading to Sydney on Friday for a few weeks. Can not wait to start my life with my love. Patience was never my strong suit but this experience has taught me so much.

I enjoy reading all of your posts!

Thank you for reading and I will update you with any news on our timeline.

Has anyone had any correspondence (RFI, phone calls, approvals, etc.) this week? The general PMV/309 thread suggests places like India are still processing. Is the U.S.?
